I've had it with these automatic updates that I didn't ask for, especially when I'm trying to switch my machine off!
How about asking me first if I want that damn update?
Why do they have to be shoved down my throat?!

That's it! I'm switching my OS!

    I've in my studies of technical works found the reason for automatic forced updates... People are fucking lazy and it makes the entire web less secure

    Leave Ubuntu but stay with Linux.

    You mean distro.

    I bet it asked you whether you want unattended upgrades or not.

    Let’s be real. Without auto updates we’ll forget. And forgetting to update leads to bugs and vulnerabilities. Don’t give your system bugs and vulnerabilities; put up with the auto updates.

    And why does an occasional longer shutdown time matter that much? You are not going to use the machine when you want to shut it down.

    This was a joke. Sarcasm. I got annoying updates when trying to shut down to switch some hardware. But while most cry about Windows updates, most comments here are supportive.

    @FelisPhasma For most responsible people, a prominent system tray icon should be a sufficient reminder, especially when it doesn't hide behind a collapsed system tray area.

    It's funny how when this kind of post is about Windows everyone bashes it but when it's Ubuntu everyone is like hey it's necessary, it makes everything more secure.
